Since the certificate has not been issued from certified authority thats why you are getting this error but its safe to continue.

you can get cheep ssl certificates for 10-15 GBP per annum if you want, then install it within the plesk panel though the Settings->SSL Certificate, you need to create CSR first which you then use when getting your SSL cert, they will then send you a certificate which you then can use within plesk, after its all approced you can select it and 'Secure Control Panel' and/or 'Make Default for WebSites', note that if your Plesk instance is running within a VPS then its possable that 'Secure Control Panel' will not work due to the way they virtulise the system and you will need to speak to your support peeps.
